Both Harry Reid’s and Obama’s “fiscal cliff” proposals don’t, won’t and are not intended to “solve” the “fiscal cliff”.
They are only intended - with the help of the treasonous media - to pretend to “solve” the “fiscal cliff” issue by dealing only with less than 1/2 of that issue - taxes (and only for certain taxpayers) - and offering nothing on the major portion of the “fiscal cliff” issue - spending.
Knowing that raising taxes on individuals earning over $250,000 and lowering exemptions on death taxes WILL NOT raise revenue levels to the levels Mr Obama is spending, and proposing nothing on reducing that spending, or any major reforms to Medicare and Medicaid, Obama and Reid are counting on the public’s ignorance and the media to sell their pretense that their tax proposals alone will solve the fiscal cliff, knowing also that their tax proposals alone will not stave off more increases in the national debt, unless spending is curtailed, spending they have no interest in reducing.
With the help of the ultra timid non-confrontational GOP elite, Obama and media keep out front the “GOP refusal to raise taxes on the rich” while Obama’s deficit sideline is sidelined in the public mind.
Whose fault is it that Liberals win their political battles in the media, not on substance?
The leadership of tbe GOP, that’s who.
Now, who can, and will articulate the truth and be able to get the message beyond the MSM?
